"We are launching a new series called Five Minute Histories. Each day, we’ll record a short video about a different historic place in Baltimore. My on-site production crew consists of my 14 year old daughter and 15 year old son, and we are honoring Governor Hogan’s request and are doing this from home.
Thank you for visiting our Transcending exhibits! One of the best ways to view the show is to click on an image of the art. Once open, you can navigate from one artwork to the next using the arrows to the side. It is sort of like strolling through a gallery! You can return to the main page by clicking the "x" at the top of the page. Viewing the art this way allows it to expand into the viewing space so that you can see it better and moving from one to the other will acquaint you with each of the artists who are exhibiting.

Dear Educators and Parents,
I am putting together a community poetry project for kids. Adults can play along too.
For several years, I have run an annual poetry writing project. For one month, participants receive a daily writing prompt related to a theme. (In 2014 we wrote in response to Pantone paint colors; in 2019 the theme was Food). The goal is to write and share a newly drafted poem with the group every day. It’s a way of practicing writing with others.
